Good food and coffee in relaxed space that is not crowded. Be prepared the breakfasts are bigger than you might expect. Coffee is self serve and one price for all you care to drink. Good for business breakfast or gathering of friends and family.

Food took forever and was mediocre at best. Terrible value and dreary atmosphere that did not appear very clean. Coffee selection is the only positive that I can think of; it was very good.

We had 5 family members from Dallas and 4 from San Antonio to meet in the middle. We chose Olive Branch after thoroughly reading all about it. They advertise they are open on Sunday. We arrived to locked doors, sign on door saying they are open on Sunday. They need to communicate better on their website if hours change. A... More

My friend and I ate lunch here after visiting Spice Village. The restaurant was inviting and clean. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. I had a southwest salad with chicken. Very yummy. Great place to eat lunch when I'm Waco.

After shopping at Spice Village (upstairs), we stopped here for a bowl of soup. The waitress was very helpful in helping us to decide on our selection. The soup was delicious with a chicken salad sandwich. The chicken salad was outstanding.

My wife, daughter and i had great lunch here on Baylor Homecoming weekend. The food was very good. Highly recommended the croissant breakfast sandwich. Casual coffee shop atmosphere in a repurposed building.

Good service; but the food is not worth returning for. Bland. I had the chicken salad sandwich on French bread (French bread was stale.... must be served fresh baked if it's a choice) and the chicken salad had more carrots (strange combination) than chicken, and the potato soup tasted like flour with a few random under cooked potatoes. Won't be... More

Granted, there were lots of events going on that weekend but the service was extremely slow. Took much longer than it should to get our breakfast. We didn't have a lot of time and wanted to shop at Spice Village which is right up the stairs. Food was just ok. Migas just had tostitos chips on the side, not corn... More
